free pattern grandma’s a touch of south west afghan

Make starting chain as long as you wish to make the afghan start with a tail and leave a tail at the end of every row when you cut the yarn at the end of every row.

below is the rest of the pattern pretty simple really

    when you make the slip knot to start make it about 4 inches from the end of the yarn ie a tail when you cut thread at the other end cut a piece 4 inches long ie the other tail

    That is absolutely gorgeous. I don't have scraps because I am also new at crocheting, but will buy new thread. Just hoping mine will coordinate as well as yours. Any suggestions, especially buying the variegrated? Also, what do you mean by slightly felted? How?

    when doing the solid try to make it be at least one of the colors in the variegate or be real close to it. As for slightly felted run through the washer and drier once to tighten the stitches and slightly felts it
